I was born in 1946 in Normandy Road (previously “Union Lane”) and lived there until 1963.
I well remember a Police Box situated at the junction of Dickens Close and Normandy Road.
It was a “cubic” shape with a door in the centre and two small recesses either side of the door.
I believe one was a Police phone line and the other was a Fire Service line, presumably for public use in case of house fires, road accidents etc.
I remember a roof mounted lamp with a protective grill around it which would occasionally flash to notify any Constable in the vicinity.
It was a favourite spot to roller skate from Dickens Close downhill pavement into the Normandy Road pavement, travelling a a rate of knots behind (or in front, if going too fast).
Not the amount of traffic back then, but today would be considered unsafe.
Any comments re this police box would be appreciated.
